The food was delicious and seasoned very well. It was busy, as it was Valentine’s Day but the server was attentive and made sure we were ok throughout the entire dinner.

The manager and waitress were extremely helpful in allowing us to order from their original menu rather than the Valentine’s Day menu because my girlfriend is vegan. It was extremely thoughtful and professional of them to be able to accommodate and resolve our issue without giving it a second thought. Thanks a million!

Went for valentine Day and surprisingly it wasn’t too busy. Everyone was so attentive and helpful. The price was good for the amount of food me and my husband ate. I like the experience of cooking the meat ourselves it was very tasty. Will eat there again

Took friends after they designed our new place. They never experienced so much meat and rice. We drank and ate lots of delicious marinated beef and chicken. Because the restaurant is three blocks from our new place, we will continue dining here.

Husband favorite place. But this time was bad.they took forever to bring the raw meat. First the rice and the only cooked food that we ordered was cold and not fresh . The pieces of meat were not in order and the pieces were huge. Here You have to use sticks ( not knife to cut in small pieces). It is sad to see a nice place changed this much. Not sure if they were missing employees or a chef. But to pay over $100 dollars in happy hour and not feel satisfied is awful

Loved the food, service was great and they even accommodated our request to sit next to a television in order for hubby and the kids to watch the football game. I would have given this place 5 stars had it not been for the poor ventilation in the restaurant. While the meat was cooking, apparently the smoke really does not have a place to go, so during the entire cooking time, I had thick smoke blowing in my face. Literally, it did not go in any other direction except for the direction where I was sitting. I looked over and noticed the person at an adjacent table was experiencing the same issue with his meal. Long story short, if you are the unlucky person sitting where the smoke blows you may not enjoy it as much as everyone else, but all in all, the food, ambiance and restaurant all receive 5 stars.

This is my 5th or 6th time at Gyu-Kaku. We always take new people with us and every one of them has loved it! The food is great and of course, we have some favorites! The fried rice and the garlic noodles are to die for!!! We ordered two servings of each and finished every drop. We really love it there and can't wait to go back! My only problem was that I forgot to get my ticket scanned for points and our check came to $170!!! I am sure though that the manager will correct the situation as it happened once before. Actually the server should have asked if we were reward members and then we would have immediately fixed the problem. All in all, a wonderful evening!

For my first time, the service was exceptionally quick and we were very satisfied with our course. The main course, especially the Harami Skirt Steak in the secret pot, was great!

The meats themselves were pretty good, and it was a fun date for my girlfriend and I to try “cooking” It can be even better in a group. The reason I’m holding it down to 3 stars is that our waiter told us there was no dessert or coffee. I recall seeing something with s’mores on the menu, and about a green tea cake on their Yelp page. Also, it was a little Smokey (which gets on your clothes). I’ve been to other bbq spots where I haven’t had that problem.

My wife and I really like this place. The food is high quality and reasonably priced. The servers are friendly and professional. Those 3 things are not easy to find in Miami. Our bill is usually $30 to $50 for two! Plus it’s fun cooking some of the meats by ourselves on the built in table grill.

It's always a great experience at Gyu-Kaku Brickell. Tonight Patricia was our server, and she was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive, and always there when we needed her. Food is always great, and the environment is fun without being loud. Highly recommended!
